DescriptionThe Awards were developed in 2014, in partnership with Investec Asset Management. The Awards aim to shine a light on the incredible work of individual conservations; to inspire, encourage, and support their work, and the efforts of others across the continent. Awards are given in the following categories: Prince William Award for Conservation in Africa; Tusk Award for Conservation in Africa, and Tusk Wildlife Ranger Award. The Prince William Award, named for William, the Duke of Cambridge, is a lifetime achievement award which recognizes outstanding dedication and exceptional contribution to conservation in Africa. The winner of the Prince William Award receives $100,000 toward their work. The Tusk Award for Conservation is given to an individual who has been judged to be emerging as a leading conservationist. This individual is recognized for their outstanding contribution to conservation and considerable success shown in their chosen field. This award, which is sponsored by Land Rover, is given to three people. The winner receives $50,000 for their work; two finalists each receive a grant of $15,000. The Ranger Award is given to men and women who work in the field protecting wildlife on a daily basis. Sponsored by a U.S. private foundation, the winner receives a grant of $20,000.
